Preparing for pregnancy
by Sarah ByBee

My husband and I are going to start trying to have another baby this fall.
My first pregnancy I had to take vaginally and oral progesterone because my levels were to low and my Dr. was concerned about miscarrying. I did have a succesful birth. However I was induced one month early because of low amniotic fluid (I am insulin resistant and take Metformin). I am 5ft 7in and weighed 265lbs @ the time of my first pregnancy. I have currently lost 25 pounds and am trying to get down to 200 before we try to have another baby.
My question is... is there any way of naturally increasing my progesterone levels? Also could the progesterone that I took the first pregnancy have effected my amniotic fluid?
